    The only place to say "I do"...

    Getting married in the midst of a global Pandemic may not sound like everyone's ideal wedding, but we weren't to know that when we booked and paid for The Blue Pigeons in January 2020. We had been for an exquisite Christmas dinner in December 2019, where we quickly commented on what a wonderful wedding venue it would be. Fast forward a few days to Christmas Eve, and the secret proposal was revealed. The timing seemed too much of a coincidence, and we quickly fell in love with the idea of having our wedding at the scenic hotel which had captured our imagination. The process for contacting and arranging a viewing was seamless, and we had paid for our venue in full by 13th January. Then Covid happened, and the country locked down.

    Most couples rearranged their special days, but we held out for our dream Autumn wedding. Emma was brillant in keeping us updated and so supportive, even with restrictions limiting aspects for ceremonies and celebrations. We chose getting married over a large party, partly because that's not really us, and we were just ready to tie the knot. In the end, the restrictions limited us to 23 guests, 2 registrars, 1 photographer, and a lot of face masks, but we finally said "I do" on the 25th September 2020, and we wouldn't have changed a thing.

    The team were impeccable. The food was divine. And the photographs will forever capture our magical day in this beautiful venue.

    If you're looking for a stylish, quaint, and LGBTQ+ inclusive venue, with picturesque views, delicious food, 5 star accomodation, and an attentive team, then I cannot recommend The Blue Pigeons enough.

    Thank you Emma, and all of The Blue Pigeons team. Abigail & Sarah x

    A very enjoyable time

    My son was married at The Blue Pigeon, the Venue was perfect, with the marriage ceremony outside in the garden. We were able to decorate the venue ourselves, inside and out, the staff attentive and all the food was outstanding.
    A very enjoyable time was spent by all and close family stayed over for two nights, the accommodation was very comfortable, highly recommended.

    Wedding venue par excellence

    The Blue Pigeons was chosen by my daughter as the venue for her wedding. She couldn't have made a better choice. The hospitality and enthusiasm of the owners and all of the staff was inspiring. The wedding guests were united in their praise for the quality and portion sizes of all of the food. Many, myself included, stated that it was the best wedding food that they had eaten. The guest rooms are comfortable and well equipped. The garden gave a perfect setting for the ceremony. This venue is the perfect package and should be on every couples list of wedding venue.

    Stress free

    We had our wedding here on 25th August 2018. Infact we had the entire venue from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. Every part of the weekend was faultless from the amazing food, friendly/helpful staff and attention to detail. Emma organises your wedding down to every last little detail and leaves you feeling stress free. We could not have asked for a better wedding!

    Dream Wedding Venue

    My 'Husband' and I recently got married here. We'd wanted an intimate, relaxed wedding in a pretty location where our guests would feel comfortable and special.
    Blue Pigeons surpassed our expectations!
    The venue was oh so pretty, informal but special. The staff were the best I've come across for many a year. Friendly, accommodating and efficient. Honestly nothing was too much trouble and they were so polite and clearly keen to ensure we were totally looked after. They made me feel so special, any request I had throughout the day they were keen to fulfil.
    The food was amazing, we had the gourmet buffet in the garden and it was perfect. Great variety and absolutely delicious. All positive comments from guests.
    The hotel is as it is described, boutique. Small and intimate and very well run. Our bridal suite room was wonderful, clean and comfortable. I had a fab relax in the comfortable double ended bath (I'm 6ft) before my wedding and felt very privileged, while the competent staff finished the venue preparations for the wedding. I felt very confident leaving all plans to them.
    The village is lovely too with several quirky places to have photos taken.
    A comment from one of the guests ' perfect wedding, relaxed, pretty, informal but special with staff that ran it seamlessly.
    I can't recommend enough :-) Thank you so much too all staff :-)

    Make sure you are hungry

    This place is just fantastic! We have eaten here several times and had our wedding here on 7th July 2018. The staff are great, attentive and friendly, any issues were immediately sorted without fuss. The food here is always incredible, just make sure you're hungry! I really can't find fault, our day was absolutely perfect.
    Thank you to Emma and all the guys at the blue pigeons for making our day amazing.

    Absolutely amazing venue

    We can not thank Emma and the team at The Blue Pigeons enough. From the very start Emma was there to help us with any queries or concerns we had about the day always helping us and making me feel less stressed! When the day finally come we could not have wished for a better day, everyone commented on how amazing the food was (both the wedding breakfast and evening buffet) and how amazing the venue looked. Emma was open to letting us put our own stamp on the place with our wedding decorations although this is not necessary as the venue itself gives the perfect backdrop. The accommodation at the venue and breakfast in the morning was also great! I can not recommend this venue enough the staff are there to ensure everything goes to plan so you can just enjoy your day, which is exactly what we did! Once again, Thank you team Blue Pigeons x

    Easter Wedding 2018

    My son and daughter-in-law married at The Blue Pigeons over Easter. We had the run of the hotel from the Wednesday afternoon which enabled us to decorate the venue inside and also put our stamp on the outside too. This was followed by a lovely evening meal for twelve with bubbly, a nice way to end the evening and relax before the big day. Emma runs a very slick operation and on the morning of the wedding it was decided to hold the ceremony outside as the weather had improved. Without any fuss the garden and gazebo was soon made ready and the room where the reception was held was transformed, which was most impressive. After a lovely service we were served canapés and drinks which were delicious followed by a hog roast buffet. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and how plentiful it was. It was a very special day which was relaxed and happy and just what the bride and groom had hoped for. Thank you Emma and her team who were always on hand with a smile.

    Not enough words ...

    We held our wedding at The Blue Pigeons Worth on Saturday 19th August 2017, and we could not have had a more enjoyable experience it was absolulately amazing, the ceremony took place in the grounds and gazebo, which were beautifully kept , clean and tidy.
    Big thanks to Emma for all her hard work, organization, her warm, friendly welcome to us and all our guests, including our three dogs .
    We had the whole venue to us and which was beautifully presented.
    The wedding breakfast was absolulately delicious, plentiful and the service outstanding, every guest commented to us how much they had enjoyed the food,
    The enjoyment carried on into the evening, with music and yet again a delicious evening buffet, which evening guests were equally complimentary.
    Our day was completed by a wonderful overnight stay in the beautiful bridal suite, which is stunning, clean and very comfortable, followed by a delicious breakfast in the morning.
    But the most impressive part which helped to make our day so special was every single member of staff, whom were so efficient, helpful, welcoming and friendly , we really could not have asked for anything more special, so there really are not enough words to express our gratitude, thankyou ALL. xx Mr and Mrs Hemmings

    Like Clockwork

    1st class venue, Emma has this venue running like clockwork, nothing was to much anything you asked for was there without a second thought, accommodation very good with on suite in all rooms, I would advise anyone looking for a wedding venue to look no further than The Blue Pigeon at Worth, Deal, Kent.

    No one left the table hungry

    Well, what a fabulous place to have a wedding .From the day before the wedding to the day after, we had a wonderful time. Stayed for two nights, had the most amazing food from pre wedding dinner, champagne breakfast, wedding breakfast and evening buffet, oh and champagne breakfast ( again) the morning after the wedding. All the meals we had were freshly cooked and good quality. No-one left the table hungry.People who attended to us were so welcoming and helpful, at all times. Our rooms were comfortable and all close by for convenience.Can't wait to visit again, for an evening meal, lunch or Sunday lunch mustn't forget the beautiful garden.

    Wedding Guru

    We had our wedding at the Blue Pigeons on the 8th July 2017 and it was absolutely first class. From the first time we contacted Emma in July 2016 until we said our goodbyes on Sunday morning every visit and phone call was so easy, professional and fun to do. When we arrived on the Friday before the wedding I was jokingly introducing Emma as the 'Wedding Guru', but by the end of our weekend there was nothing 'jokingly' about it as she is brilliant. The whole wedding went off without a single hiccup. The location is first class, the accommodation is 5 star, the food was out of this world and we cannot say enough good things about the staff. I have been in staff management for 40 years and to do annual reviews for the Blue Pigeon Staff would be a pure delight. We lost count of the amount of our guests that gave us compliments about all aspects of the Blue Pigeons and on behalf of myself, my new wife and every single one of our guests I would like to say a huge thank you to Emma and all of the staff for making our day a day to remember....very many thanks ....Allan and Linda Jones xxxxx

    Best Man at my friends wedding

    Stayed at The Blue Pigeons over two nights. I was Best Man at my friends wedding. The room was very clean with a very comfortable bed. The bedroom was slightly bijou but that wasn't a problem at all. Plenty of product in the bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities and lovely biscuits. The restaurant food was excellent and the portion sizes even defeated me (and I like my food). Emma and her team were very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this establishment for either a base, a meal or a party/wedding celebration.

    Friends wedding

    My wife and I attended our friends wedding on the 6th of July we stayed for 2 nights from the 5th through to the 7th. From the moment we arrived the staff were so attentive and couldn't do enough for you. The staff really did an amazing job in contributing to what turned out to be an amazing day. The hotel which clearly had received a makeover and even had the fresh smell of paint was wonderful and the bed Wow very comfortable. Oh and then there is the gazebo and the gardens which were very well kept. Thank you for a fab stay and if we need a place to book in the future I won't hesitate to call Job well done
